The themes are very different but they both might try to capture the essence of what life was like for the period that Route 66 was popular. The road brought new life to many different ideas that may never have grown in the way they did.
This drive takes 13 minutes longer to get to Victorville than the Highway, covering over 30 miles. There really isn’t much to see on this drive. Very little evidence of any commercial activity to promote fun and excitement. Much of the advertising is to sell land along the roadway. I’m sure you can find a good bargain with one of the real estate agents.
I was surprised there was a security guard for the space exhibit. A lady walked past me with an authoritative look, but said nothing. Then a security lady walked in and asked me if I was with the city. I guess she suspected I was not (city meeting being held there at the time). They knew I didn’t pay any $5, but they were so busy that no one was at the front counter when I walked past. I seized the moment by recording as much as I could.
I was thinking about trying to hide when I heard the lady walk by, but she made a strong effort to look around every corner anyway. But, this exhibit really didn’t look like it was worth $5 anyway. Maybe I went the wrong way?
I don’t know if my health is typical, but there is a difference in my health status between my 20 and 40s
This Parkour Pooch got me the most up votes yet on Imgure at 14 votes. There was no sidewalk on this side street so maybe not many people pass by very closely to the dogs yard. He can climb the wall very easily and I was lucky he didn’t spring at me.
The 32x speed is the whole trip and the other videos are the full drive. Play them all at once for fun:
I was relying on Google Maps and came across enough problems trying to navigate my way out of Las Vegas
If you park at the Visitor Center, it’s free to park. About 4 miles from Hoover Dam and 4 miles the other way to Boulder City. This trail was train tracks, turned into an amazing bicycling trail. I record the ride overlooking Lake Mead and through a tunnel. There are heat warnings on parts of the trail. Do not come here in the summer and expect to survive a hike. I have to wonder how the workers, who built the Hoover Dam, handled the intense heat.
There is a surprising amount of vegetation in the immediate area, more than you would expect in a desert. But as the lake continues to recede, so will this vegetation. I believe the plants were probably on a higher level when the lake was 20 feet higher.
Seeing how low the Lake Mead receded, you can understand why St Charles reemerged from the water. I have video of walking around St Charles. It’s amazing how the dam was poorly planned in that it buried a town like St Charles in a watery grave for about 50 years.
So I have been featured on Liveleak for a fourth time. I have something else to upload next that I think will probably get featured as well. They are 2 videos that happened last year. I just want to point out the hypocrisy of the cops in Meridian. It’s mind boggling to see such differences in police standards.
#featured on #liveleak for a 4th time with my cop videos. I have amounted a collection of #police interactions over the past few years and am now uploading them to Liveleak. The #comment section is sad, but #troll has taken my main #YouTube channel down and motivated me to spread my vids to other platforms.
Ofcourse, I will always have new cop content coming in because trolls can be found in every city and town. It didn’t take long to have a troll call the cops on me for being at the library, when the very troll himself was also at the library. He thinks he is more worthy than me
I never heard of Laser Dentistry before. But I suppose it can work if carefully controlled. I hope cops never use lasers. They have enough trouble controlling their flashlights.
These bunnies seem very dependent on humans. I bet people are feeding them candy and making them addicted to sugar. This disrupts their natural migration patterns. However, human activity has done enough disruption to last for hundreds of years.
Just looking around Boulder City, I see it’s quite a tourist town right now. I feel sorry for the people who want to come here in the summer. The city puts up warnings all over about the heat. It doesn’t take long for the 100 degrees to kill you
I would love for cops to spend a little more time learning what their representatives have said at city councils when the lawmakers decide to enact a new law or change an existing one. I also wish the cities would have to follow Trumps policy that if they create one new law, they have to remove 2 old laws.
